4.0 out of 5 stars DuroMax Elite MX1500 Generator, October 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DuroMax Elite MX1500 1,500 Watt 3 HP OHV 4-Cycle Gas Powered Portable Generator (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
Very happy with this purchase. Generator started on the third pull very first time I attempted to use it. Choke lever position is mislabeled (reversed) on both the unit and in the manual. I noticed the choke butterfly was in the wrong position when I pulled the cover to the air filter to check it before running. Tried to contact the seller about this issue, but got an obvious form response "If you are having problems with your new .......,etc." Not thrilled about their ignorance and potential future responses in case of trouble. I thought they may want to include an errata sheet or something, but they were not paying much attention.
Otherwise, I ran it for two hours while monitoring the output with a 600 W worklight and a P4400 Kill A Watt. Ran fine, steady, and relatively quiet at 63Hz freq. Didn't seem to put a dent into the gas supply in the tank. Did not get a chance to use it for a real emergency yet - I got it for the recent hurricane on the East coast, but never lost city power. Be aware that it's rated at only 1000 W continuous duty, though. I got it mainly for the sump pump which is about all it could handle, anyway. Made in China. Big surprise there!!
